Newsflash, there is a big old world out there and with your line of reasoning nobody would ever know a damn thing about the rest of the world, which would be a really dumbass way of living. Help is help. It is each individuals choice, often based on some aspect of a particular need which touches a particular heart, as to who, what, when and where they decide to help others. Heck, with your line of reasoning, there is really no reason for our troops to ever be anywhere except on US soil.

Tis true, that there is a lot of need right here at home. Somebody needs to help you learn how to be less bitter, less judgemental, more accepting of others and more loving.

You advice is offensive, insensitive and narrow minded.

These parents should be nothing but proud of their children. I find it OFFENSIVE and I'm sure I'm not the only one

The last thing the Hayes family needs or deserves is any criticism. I have a tremendous amount of respect for them in that they have traveled to the Dominican Republic and now Haiti to help with the search effort. They need our continued prayers and support. Now is not a time for the blame game or what-ifs.

Askandgetrid, please delete your post. Besides the fact that you can't spell offense or use the correct form of "there" in a sentence, the statement was ignorant and I feel would be very offensive to the family. Just put yourself in their place and maybe you will understand.

Askandgetrid:
Respectfully, I am a mother of three young kids,
I would feel so honored and thankful if I could raise my children to be the kind of givers these young college kids are. It does not get any better as a parent than to raise a child that wants to selflessly give back. These young people honorably went to the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere and wanted to help the Haitian people. They were not on a vacation; they were working to improve the lives of the most impoverished people.
All of these Lynn University parents have done an outstanding job raising young adults. These Lynn University students, including Courtney, represent the best of their generation. They want to give back and make the world a better place. The Haynes should be commended that they have raised such an incredible human-being. I am sure they worried for her, as all good parents would, but she is a young adult making very thoughtful decisions. Decisions that I, as a parent, would be extremely proud of! I feel so bad for them trying to find their beautiful child in a third world country that is being ravaged right now because people are starving and scared. Thankfully, we have young people willing to selflessly give of themselves.
Please uplift this family in prayer and their precious daughter. God Bless Them. I pray for a miracle tonight for their family.

Askandgetrid, Are you an idiot IRL or do you just play one in cyberspace? Kudos to the Hayes family for raising a compassionate child like Courtney. The world could use more people like this young lady. I pray you are able to visit an under developed country one day so you can see first hand how blessed even the homeless have it in the U.S.

Don't forget why we are on this forum. I am here to ask that we keep praying, there is still hope. A 3 year old little girl was pulled from the rubble yesterday. She survived 5 days. These students along with Courtney are young and strong, they can survive. I am praying for a miracle. God will give them strength and will give their families strength also.

Counts, I agree with your post.

Any news from Lauren today? Didn't get to call office today. Been a very hectic Monday. Prayers still going though. You don't have to hit your knees to pray. You can pray going down the road or going about your daily work. Be blessed.

Just now got off phone with law office. They have no update for today as of yet. Said Angie had not called in yet. Said Lauren was doing as best as she could under the circumstances. Just keep the family in our prayers. I will call back later this afternoon to see what they know.

Have a blessed day all.

This is Windi from Windi's Bridal. I just checked my stock and I am out of the yellow ribbon. I have placed an order for some that will be in tomorrow or Thursday. If the down town merchants will come by, we will give them a bow to place on the doors. I will make a post when the ribbon comes in. The Hayes family is in our thoughts and prayers!!!
